TWO NEW BOOKS SOON TO BE RELEASED FROM INDEPENDENTBAPTIST.COM PUBLISHERS
Brother Hyles often said, “I don’t pastor the members of First Baptist Church. I pastor the Sunday school teachers of First Baptist Church. The Sunday school teachers pastor the people of First Baptist Church.” That is why he built and maintained such a healthy church. He knew that people need to be pastored.
Unfortunately, many men copied the ministries of First Baptist Church, but did not copy the Sunday school. They started the Spanish ministry, but did not organize a Spanish Sunday school. They started a bus ministry in ghetto areas, but they did not organize a Sunday school program for those riding those buses. They put the cart before the horse.

"I remember my first weekend in Hyles Anderson college. Sunday morning I was put into the Junior 3B department and the giant opening assembly. After the opening was concluded we divided up into dozens of smaller classrooms. The Seifer furniture building was old, the classroom dividers were hardly more than curtains, but dozens of teachers had their own small group of children to teach. Hyles Anderson was only a few years old at the time, it was January of 1979. I spent the next 3 1/2 years learning about Sunday school. I sat in teachers meetings and heard Bro Hyles himself teach through the lesson for the next week, giving us little thoughts, tidbits, illustrations and truth for our class the next week. Sunday school was big to Brother Hyles.
In a Christian culture that is fast exalting the mega church and quickly eroding the Sundayschool ministry, these pages outline the philosophies and the principles upon which America's Sunday schools were once built. Dr. Jack Hyles knew church work. He knew the fulfillment of the great commission could not happen with just one giant service a week. Although he believed in big everything else, Sunday schools were small, personal, and a tool to train both the teacher and the student.
In these pages you will see principles articulated, ideas crystalized, and discover the simplicity and profundity of Dr. Hyles amazing Sunday school. Perhaps the greatest truth in these pages is the "WHY." Why do we do what we do. This is a marvelous "what, why and how" of Sunday School.
This is a must read! A wonderful treatise! You will stop constantly to write notes to yourself and others, you will see your own questions mentioned with answers supplied. What a tool to bring us back to a place of influence our community!"
